. that accomplishment led to a memorable lunch meeting with president george w. bush. >> i had pecan pie, which is my favorite dessert. i guess he saw me enjoying it. i said, man, this is good. and the president of the united states took his fork, without even asking my permission, and said, let me try that. and took some of my pecan pie. and i was like, no, he didn't. what can i do. secret service all over. i can't say, sir, you can't have that. that was a moment i will never forget. >> reporter: luter's personality allows him to connect with almost everyone, from pred presidents to perfect strangers. >> i'm not on anyone's payroll, but n my dad loved krispy kreme cream doughnuts. >> reporter: next to that love of doughnuts, his humility is what his son, chip, loves most about his father. >> my father -- even being a dad, he always just wanted to do his best. >> reporter: with thousands in his growing congregation, he leaves the pulpit to shake the hands of people in the pews. he also writes to the mail. it is what he calls "fangalism." fans, friends, and family. >> reporter: some people were tweeti

presidential leadership. as mr. romney was leaving on this foreign trip, it was announced that george w. bush, the last republican president, will not be going to the convention that will nominate mr. romney next month. and as mr. romney returns from this trip, it is announced that former vice president dick cheney will not be going to the convention either. mr. cheney telling abc news he plans to go fishing instead. so the olympics, not just the trip, but the metaphor, is apt here. this is a passing of the torch. the republican party this week is insuring that the existing torch holders are in fact going to hand it over. but the guy they're trying to hand it over to at this point in his campaign seems more apt to light himself metphorically on fire with that torch than to run it anywhere. joining us now is john harwood, cnbc's chief washington correspondent. thank you for your time. nice to see you. >> hi, ms. leader. >> you can call me anything. after five days of vacation at this point, i'm impuvious to insult. how are republicans in d.c. reacting to the romney overseas trip? is this accom

, previously he had a number of distinguished responsibilities in both the reagan, george h.w. bush and george w. bush administrations. first the special assistance to the president and deputy to the chief of staff and in the white house for intergovernmental affairs. as many diplomatic posts have included ambassador to the united nations in geneva, assistant secretary of state for international organization affairs and most recently as president george w. bush's national envoy to sudan. he is also a longtime member and i think now vice chairman of the tours at the international republican institute. so, we are very glad to welcome both rich and michelle to this podium. proteins prides itself as a nonpartisan think tank and in that context we are hosting this event today. our moderator is a guest scholar of brookings and chief quarters make respondent for cbs and nbc news, former anchor of the nbc "meet the press" program and also most recent lame as the hunting legacy, marvin powell. it's my pleasure to hand podium to you. >> thank you very much. i assume all of you are foreign policies and i
as the jeremiah wright candidate and george w. bush didn't run on his service in the national guard. but romney is a one trick pony. the only calling card he has for the presidency is his time in business." has his chief asset, that meaning governor romney, now turned into a liability? >> clearly, the liability in the last 48 hours. i disagree with my friend, david corn, because i think romney can put this behind him. my hope is at 6:00 tonight he will put it behind. his surrogates and his campaign, he can answer questions satisfactory to the american people. i think once that's done, then obama has no way to go to retread it. this narrative that obama wants is fit for them. most voters may not care about this. they want to know that whoever their next president is does have a real plan for prosperity, a real plan to return jobs and all of this other stuff is sort of a sideshow. the president has been successful in kwee ating a big question mark about romney on this issue. all he has to do is have the question mark at the margins in a few swing states. what romney's job is to do, barack obama h
can always blame the staff. of course, there might be personal reticence on his part. george h.w. bush was famously averse to using the i-word. there may be a little of that. it might be that the republicans put the white house on the defensive. you remember when he made the call on osama bin laden and announced that we had gotten bin laden in a low key kind of way. the republicans immediately jumped on him and accused him of taking a victory lap and doing unseemly things and politicizing. it might be that the media is not giving him enough credit for telling the story that he has told. i don't disagree that he hasn't done a good enough job but not enough credit for telling a story. when the president comes out and says we passed this bill and here are a lot of the good things it's going to do, it doesn't make the news the way the president is a communist and he's going to give us death panels -- and by the way i'm wearing a funny hat. that tends to lead the news. >> steve mcmahon, he did a good job telling stories in 2008 and seems to have lost the mojo on substantive matters. let's g
congress enacted and george w. bush signed in 2004. totally bipartisan effort to change what had been a 1947 dismodel. we passed the basic pillar for our intelligence and defense agencies in 1947, geared against the soviet union. and we never changed it until after 9/11 when it was clear that one, the soviet union ended in 1989 but two, the threats were completely different against our country. so the reform set up a joint command structure called the office 6 the directioner of national intelligence, across 16 intelligence agencies. and the idea is not to build a bureaucracy but to leverage their strength. and our intelligence capability is better. our national intelligence estimates which are the way we assess what is going on in different countries are much stronger than they were. and i think it would be much harder to make the mistake that we made on what is the destruction in iraq so we're better. the agencies are doing better. what we're missing is a very clear legal framework around our post 9/11 policies. we've never been able to do that because congress doesn't work very wel
. and oh, here's something interesting, it's also about equal in size to george h.w. bush's 1990 tax increase. and whoa, you know who signed an even bigger tax increase into law, president ronald reagan. his 1982 tax increase was about 42% bigger. reagan also cut taxes and indeed he did, he cut them big. much like obama did in the stimulus and then again in 2010 when he extended all of the bush tax cuts for two years and added more on top of that, and like he's promising to do again in 2012 when he said he would extend most of the bush tax cuts permanently. i don't think this is great. to be fiscally responsible in the country, we're going to need to do more than let the bush tax cuts expire. we have to get deficits under control, taxes have to stop being a dirty word and start being a part of budgeting. we need to have the numbers straight. the affordable care act is not the largest tax hike in history, in 50 years, 40 years, 30 years, even 20 years and if you count the scheduled expiration in 2010 of the bush tax cuts, it's not even the largest tax hike written into law in the last
to make the argument that mitt romney's foreign policy as a return to george w. bush. he left office very unpopular with respect to his foreign policy. obama will argue that he inherited a mess, at a less secure world, and he has made it more secure. mitt romney is advocating the same policies as george w. bush and will try to paint them as being reckless, too quick to use force, and the like. one more direct line of attack that was tried already was mitt romney did make some statement saying that he did not think we should gallivant around the world and spend billions of dollars trying to find one person. he criticized obama's statement that he would go inside pakistan after bin laden. obama will try to truck that out to show that mitt romney is not tough on terrorism. i think he will try to make the argument that mitt romney is trapped in the past and his statements that russia is our number one geopolitical cell was mocked by a lot of people in the foreign-policy establishment, including a lot of republicans. the arms control agreement had very strong bipartisan support. they were kind
president. lbj, bill clinton, or george w. bush. >> yeah. for our intelligence. the sharing of sorts in a very open way. president obama on the nation's security. i think it's a highly story record from his point of view. >> wolf, how do you scare this? you have netanyahu, who is o fusive about mitt romney. what do you make of that? >> well, both of them told me, the prime minister, the president of israel who worked in the defense establishment of israel for so many years, a former prime minister. as well as the current defense minister, who is a former prime minister of israel, both said the u.s./israeli military to military velgs ship right now. intelligence community to intelligence community relationship right now is excellent. it's as good if not better than it's ever been before. and they were extremely complimentary to president obama. both of them, and even as romney was still on basically the ground in israel. he was just getting ready to leave to fly off to poland. i was surprised by the enthusiastic praise they had for president obama, given some of the problems that pres
was appointed by president george w. bush to head the federal deposit insurance corporation, the fdic. now as senior advisor to the pew charitable trust, sheila bair has just organized a private group of financial experts called the systemic risk council. among its members, former fed chairman paul volcker, former senators bill bradley and alan simpson, john reed, once the chairman of citigroup, and brooksley born, the former cftc chairman who back in the 1990s accurately predicted an economic meltdown. its mission, to prevent the banking industry from scuttling the reforms created by the dodd-frank act, and, hopefully, prevent another crash. she has a book coming out in late september about the need for reform called "taking the bull by the horns." she's also written two books for children about money and entrepreneurship. "rock, brock and the savings shock" and "isabel's car wash." sheila bair, welcome. >> thank you. happy to be here. >> if you were trying to help some of those young people that you write for, understand this business called libor, how would you begin? what's the "once u
's barack obama or george w. bush, but it's not that simple, not that satisfying. one cause however does stand out amongst many. cheap and ample credit. for years the ability of almost every working american to access more credit than they should have been able to, masked the underlying fact that lower and middle class incomes were not rising. people felt and in many cases actually were wealthier than their salaries or socioeconomic status would suggest. getting a loan and buying a house, often more house than you needed or would have expected to buy, made you feel wealthier. as more people bought those houses, your net worth increased. you borrowed against that house, maybe. maybe you put your kids through college with the money. maybe you bought another house or financed a small business. maybe there wasn't even a house involved. maybe you did all of those things on low interest credit cards or other kinds of loans, but it doesn't really matter because generally economies were strong and you had a job, even if the job wasn't getting much better and your wage wasn't growing you were for
during the administrations of george w. bush and ronald reagan. he's now a senior advisor at the center for strategic and international studies. gentlemen, thank you both for being with us. john mearsheimer, i'm going to start with you. this did start with the article in foreign affairs magazine. you don't go as far as that author does in arguing that a nuclear-armed iran would be a net positive. but you do agree with him that it would bring stability to the region. why? >> i think there's no question that a nuclear-armed iran would bring stability to the region because nuclear weapons are weapons of peace. they're weapons of deterrence. they have hardly any offensive capability at all. and if iran had a nuclear deterrent, there's no way that the united states or israel, for that matter, would be threatening to attack iran now. in the same way that if saddam had had nuclear weapons in 2003, the united states would not have invaded iraq. anif libya h nuclear weapons in 2011, the united states would not have gone to war against libya. so i think that if you had a middle east where other s
